Default Spirit electrical outlets?

Hi everyone,

I've read about the electrical outlets on the Spirit. I'm trying to understand if I'll be able to use my hairdryer or if I should leave it at home.

The dryers that were on the Sun and the Sea just didn't cut it, so I was really glad to have my own along. So, I'm afraid that the dryers on the Spirit are also going to lack "oomph!" (Especially needed to dry wet hair that has been in the ocean water all day!) Does anyone know if you can buy an electrical converter or something so that you can use personal appliances? I haven't really done international travel so I haven't had to buy any kits in the past, but I see them for sale at places like Walmart, etc. Would those work??

Thanks!!!

There are two 110volt outlets in the rooms. One is attached to the hairdryer in the bathroom. The other one is at the desk. My wife brought her own hairdryer (she has thick hair). We brought an extension cord that had three outlets at one end and plugged it into the desk outlet. This way we could charge our digital camera, shaver and still have an extra for the hairdryer at the same time. They do say not to plug anything in that is over 500watts. Her hairdryer was a 1200 watt model and had no problems.

Yes, I was nervous because my hair dryer is 1275 watts (over the 500 they tell you you can plug in). I didn't want to blow the fuse for my hallway. That said, I was thinking of buying something like this:

so I can use the 220 volt outlets - without worries ? I might ask my travel agent to find out
